There are tons of skin benefits of drinking green smoothies, but this one is specifically targeted for your skin.
With a high level of antioxidants, essential nutrients and trace minerals, you'll develop a completely natural glow and a ridiculous boost in energy.
You'll feel hydrated and nourished... and your immune system will kick into overdrive, which means you'll have a healthy body, healthy skin and healthy mind.
WHY IT'S SO INCREDIBLE:
AVOCADO - acts as an internal moisturizer. Healthy fats are crucial to having amazing skin... without it, you'll experience dryness and inflammation.
Avocados are also high in vitamin E (which is key to improving the complexion of your skin), it's a great source of monounsaturated fats (which help raise your "good" cholesterol levels), and it contains a ton of fiber and potassium.
MANGO - great source of vitamin A and C, which keeps your skin healthy and your complexion glowing. They're high in carotenoids which help brighten up dull-looking skin.
SPINACH/KALE/GREENS - has a high quantity of antioxidants, which is extremely important for your skin, because antioxidants fight free radicals. They contain lots of vitamin A, which repairs damaged skin, as well as beta-carotene, folate, B vitamins, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium and potassium - all the beauty boosters.
COCONUT WATER - is incredibly hydrating. It contains potassium, magnesium, copper and other essential minerals that are critical for healthy skin. It also has antioxidants, which prevents and neutralizes damage caused by free radicals.
CAMU CAMU - is the most concentrated, natural food sources of vitamin C - it'll brighten your skin, repair connective tissue and promote collagen production improving the tone of your skin. It'll rebuild tissue, purify your blood, strengthen your immune system... and promote fat burning in the body. Lots of benefits here.
GROUND FLAX - is the highest known plant source of omega-3 fatty acids. It's great for immune and cardiovascular health, and also helps to reduces inflammation. A great source of dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals.
ADDED TIPS -
- Use organic produce, if possible - either fresh or frozen.
- Try not to use any added sweeteners. You'll get enough sweet from the fruit.
- Adding ground flax will transform your smoothie into a meal replacement. (it'll add even more essential vitamins and minerals, omega-3 fatty acids, fiber and some protein).
